Upcoming Taiwanese drama: Quietly Falling in Love with You/Knock Knock Loving You

knock_knock_loving_you

I have to say, I wasn’t that interested in the upcoming Ming Dao/Dylan Kuo drama Quietly Falling in Love with You when I originally did a post on it after a reader requested it, but it’s looking better and better, particularly now that it’s clear that Dylan is the main lead(I’m not a big fan of Ming Dao). Populasian just informed me that the the title has been changed from QFiLwY to Knock Knock Loving You, and sure enough Dramawiki has a recently updated page under that title. It will premier April 12 and Populasian also directed me to the rather lovely CTS site for it.

Synopsis:

Cheng Xue Ge(Dylan Kuo) had lived in the life of comfort and never knew the dark side of human nature until his father’s company bankrupted. In order to restore the company, he must learn from his archrival, Yao Zi Wang(Wu Ya Xin), the ins and outs of being a shrewd, successful businessman. While working closely together, he slowly realizes her coldblooded ruthlessness was only a front to protect her battered heart. But before he could sort out his feelings about her, another man, Zhao Guan Xi(Ming Dao), already has his eyes on her business talent and her hand in marriage.

Upcoming Taiwanese drama: Quietly Falling in Love with You

One of my readers, Lina, has requested several times that I do a post about Taiwanese actor Ming Dao’s upcoming dramas, so here is the first part of it. Ming Dao’s career first took off in 2005 with the incredibly poular drama The Prince Who Turns Into a Frog with Chen Qiao En. He has three dramas set to come out in 2009/2010. He finished filming Quietly Falling in Love with You, which he stars in with Dylan Kuo of The Outsiders, and is also working on  both Always Smile! and Staying By Sunshine, Staying By You, in the latter of which he will be re-teaming with Chen Qiao En.

First up, Quietly falling in Love with You (note-don’t be confused, there’s apparently a Korean drama with the same name, in fact I heard this one is a remake of the Korean drama, but whatever the case, they’re two separate dramas):
